@RickL That is nice to know that you can repair it. I would love to see a tutorial on how to do that, appropriate tools, etc... for those of use whose flickering started after the 3-year flickering-extended warranty.
@abbasharoon I would love to read the complete details that you mention.
Does anyone think the issue could be related to non-microsoft chargers causing swelling of the battery? Or to leaving the surface charging for several hours even when fully charged?
